Linz: Czech seventh seed Karolina Pliskova clinched her third career title when she saved a match point to beat Italy`s Camila Giorgi 6-7 (4/7), 6-3, 7-6 (7/4) in the Linz WTA final on Sunday.

Pliskova was match point down at 6-5 in the deciding set before she rallied to add the Austrian trophy to triumphs in Kuala Lumpur in 2013 and Seoul last month.

Giorgi has now lost the two finals in which she has appeared.

"It could have been a little easier, but I`m still happy I won the title," said the 22-year-old Czech.

"After I was 5-1 up (in the final set) and she came back and had match point, I was already thinking I would lose."
